On Monday’s Houston Matters: On Saturday (June 22) President Trump "postponed" his threat of ICE raids across 10 major cities in the nation, including Houston. News 88.7's immigration reporter Elizabeth Trovall tells us why immigrant families are preparing for the worst.

And, we speak with Julie Pasch, managing attorney for Deportation Defense Houston, about Houstonians' reactions to this latest threat of deportation and what families should do if ICE knocks on their doors.

Then, amidst mounting tuition costs and a subsequent rise in student debt, we explore ways for would-be graduate students to ensure they don’t get trapped in a six-figure debt for a four-figure education.

Also this hour: On this month’s edition of The Bigger Picture, we examine identity and a sense of place in the new film The Last Black Man in San Francisco.

Plus, Jeff Balke, who writes for Houstonia Magazine and the Houston Press, joins us to discuss developments in Houston sports.
